* auto-import when requested resource's module isn't imported (Kevin Dangoor)
* fix detection of "baskets" in sys.path directories (Paul Moore)
* allow directories as arguments to --find-links (Paul Moore)
* fix python -m easy_install not working (Paul Moore)


(P.S. this also fixes some breakage w/buildutils 0.1.1 trying to import 
stuff from the 'easy_install' module.  But note that buildutils doesn't 
seem to be smart enough about installing dependencies yet anyway, because 
trying to install pudge at runtime complains about it not being found in 
PyPI.  I'm guessing that if Ryan's not going to put these modules up on 
PyPI, he needs to add some --find-links to the easy_install subcommand that 
buildutils runs to install a command's dependencies.)

(P.P.S. That reminds me... Ryan, don't bother putting 
http://peak.telecommunity.com/dist/ in your --find-links list; now that 
I've got automatic PyPI uploading figured out, I plan to put future 
"stable" releases on PyPI, and snapshot releases (of projects other than 
setuptools itself) will go to http://peak.telecommunity.com/snapshots/ in 
the future.)
